6:52pm
welcome to maryland's spotlight. there is a new law in town and it will affect you if you are a senior citizen. i wanted to get more information on that. kevin is joining me. thanks for being here today. >> thanks kim. >> this is a big deal. this new law that is coming out in october. >> october 1, banks, credit unions, savings and loans will be required to report instances where they believe could constitute financial exploitation of the elderly. kind of putting that in common
6:53pm
language if they think son is coming into the bank with mom to get money out of the mom, they have to either call the police or adult protective services. >> this is a big deal and a fine line on how do you know if somebody is doing this? do you have to train the tellers to see that? >> that is in the new laws as well. these institution are burdened with training their staff with possible signs of abuse. they look for things is mom suddenly using her atm everyday when for ten years she never uses it or is she suddenly cashing in cds when she used to role them over? this would be one bell to ring. >> now is this just in maryland? >> 20 other states have enacted similar legislation, so we can't say this will never work. it is apparently working in other states. >> how often do you think this
6:54pm
happens, family members are exploiting their own family members? >> maryland documented a thousand cases over the last year, at least reported so it is pretty prevalent and they want to put an end to it. >> now, are there any fines involved? how does this whole thing work? >> yes, the banks, if they fail to report something, they are subject to a $5,000 fine for each case they don't report. they have to report it within 24 hours of the incident and then they have to follow-up in writing within 3 days. >> now, let me ask you. you're an elder law attorney so you have a lot of clients. how does this impact your clients? >> this is the real issue. we see clients who say can i give my money to my children to protect it or the children say is there a way mom can protect her money from a nursing home? this is giving away an
6:55pm
elderly's money. this could be exploitation when maybe it is not at also as an attorney we have to be careful what we're sending the family out to do. we don't want to send then to jail. >> what do eye do? >> there is one really good solution and it has been the best solution. power of attorney. a document that legally enables a child to deal with mom's finances, take the money. it is in the power of attorney. if mom signs that when she knows what she is doing, an attorney is backing it up that helped write it, i think that will be fine. >> isist going to be every case or do you know what to look for as a teller? >> how do you know? every time a person comes in with a family member, they are pushing the button calling the authorities? >> how well does your bank know you and the days of the little
6:56pm
local friendly bank are kind of slipping away but there are still the credit unions and so forth so getting to know the manager and the people in the bank can only help. it could hurt too, it could hurt the son who is unemployed been living off of mom, has a drug habit. that is going to be the red button being pushed. >> if anyone wants information to contact you to see how they can talk about the power of attorney, do you have a website? >> yes. they can look up pk law@pk law.com. >> very good. so important to definitely get to know your bank, your local bank this will be affecting all banks anniversary save ks and loans credit unions in a matter of days. >> very interesting. new law starting october 1st. >> thank you for joining me. >> thank you for joining me on
